We are inviting people to have their say new on a new Waste Plan, which is to be prepared jointly by Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire County Council
Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire County Council as Waste Planning Authorities have a statutory duty to maintain an up-to-date Waste Local Plan, which provides planning policies that will help shape future waste development and provide the basis for decisions on waste related planning applications.
Work has started on a new Waste Plan, which is to be prepared jointly by Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire County Council. This will ensure that we can plan for sufficient sites to meet future demand for waste and resource recovery over the next 15-20 years, a period which will see significant housing and economic growth across the plan area. We are inviting people to consider what kind of policies should be in the next version of the Plan, ensuring that all issues are taken into account and that all options for waste management have been considered.
Once adopted, the document will provide a range of policies aimed at supporting sustainable waste management, helping us to meet our objectives on climate change and minimising carbon emissions. The Plan will then be used to determine planning applications for waste development.
